So I "accidentally" got the krist block value to above 53 KST

So, I realized that buying a name made the block value go up, so I bought about 50 names. Now the block value is 53 KST, everybody in the world is mining everything, and I can't get anything with my pathetic 16 MH/s power, so..

Yeah. Enjoy all your Krist. I wasted 25k Krist, and I don't have nearly enough computing power to get it back since my server's dead.

I honestly thought it increased the block value for only myself and permanently. Both of those are completely false.

Ah, yes, indeed. You just poured 25 000 krist into the network which is up to anyone to mine. You know, it's never wrong to try stuff, but I would not try stuff with 25 000 kst.... Anyway, enjoy all the names ;)

Wow, impressive. I don't think I've seen the block value this high since 2015. Very kind of you to soak 25k into the network :D I'm sure it will be greatly beneficial to the less fortunate.

Holy....wow! That is a LOT of Krist, crazy stuff :D What are you going to use the names for?

The names were basically "gmmk{0..50}". Worthless, tbh.

It feels like a waste for me. I worked hard (and waited too, 16 MH/s) to get all that Krist, and I wasted it all in 5 minutes.

They're worthless names... 😭

@LoganDark look in your DM, perhaps I can get you some krist back.

I'm going to attempt to recover some portion of the sunk cost by using 8 GPUs. Wish me luck :P

What GPUs are they? (brand/model/version)

Nevermind. As it turns out, kristforge won't compile on the system, and before I could ask for help, I just got way too pissed to communicate effectively.

They were Nvidia Tesla K80s, but I might as well give them away now since they're useless without a GPU miner (none of which, not even turbokrist, will compile on said system, by the way)

Yemmel is genuinly asking for any help you may need, we don't want drama on the forums, so he, the creator, definitely wouldn't bring it here.
